Surprises at the Srikanteshwara Temple, Nanjangud


The roof opens up to the sky at a certain point inside this temple. At that time, a bel tree spreading its branches over the sanctum can be seen through that open space. Surprisingly, the tree’s roots are not visible anywhere in the soil. It is very surprising how the bell tree survives without getting soil or water.

Also, another amazing thing is that there are many pillars in this temple, as in many temples. But the specialty here is that though there are many pillars in the temple, only one of them shows the face of Mata Gauri from time to time. According to those who visit the temple regularly, Goddess Gauri’s face is constantly changing. Not only that, but sometimes it looks very clear and transparent.
